Staples Charmin Deal

Of all the places to buy toilet paper, you might not think of Staples first. Until 7/30, Staples has Charmin Basic Toilet Paper, 16 double rolls, for $4.99.

What makes this an awesome deal is that they just released a 20% off one item coupon making it $3.99 (25¢ per roll). The coupon is only good today and tomorrow so swing by soon for the best deal.

Sometimes you can get unexpected deals at the office supply stores, you just have to know a good price when you see it!

      Another interesting sale — Quartet’s Enduraglide Dry-Erase markers, fine tip, black, 4 pack with bonus marker normally 5.99 is $1 (limit of two per customer).  The deal  expires on 7/2.

      Th following coupon for 15% off one item can be used with the 20% coupon.  http://reg.e.staples.com/c/s/tagfrm/hBOCXwRB7SHGCB8cGKGCYt$Qx7L/coupon.html?n=243&email=&cm_mmc=__circ-_-062811CW-_-Chain51-_-num&cm_lm=&cid=EM:CM:_BOCXwRB8cGKGYO&om_rid=

      • BrittG

        where do you all find coupons for staples like this? im always looking and i never have the luck.

    • Jessica R

      Does Staple accept manufacturer coupons?

      • Zyler9999

        I think most of them do, but you may want to call ahead and doble check.  I've heard some people say that their Staples store didn't.

      • Madbeachin1

        So funny I just posted the same question :-)

      • My understanding is YES!  The sales clerk at Staples offered us a 25 cent coupon toward the Charmin.. but I prefer 20% off!

        • Madbeachin1

          Could you not use both?

          • Mel

            I went on Wen, and used both the the 15% off and manufacturer couon with no problems.

            • Mel


    • Madbeachin1

      Can you use a manu. coupon at Staples?

      • Lknow68


    • Triplettk

      There's also a .25/1 Charmin  q in PG 6/05.

    • Maria C

      Can I use both the 20% off and a Staples Reward coupon on this? Or is it one or the other?

      • Madbeachin1

        I just read the fine print on the STAPLES coupon “Each item purchased can only be discounted by one coupon….”

        • Lknow68

          My store takes both.

      • Donna

        I was able to use one both last night, it's better to ask before you shop.

    • Jenn C

      Just checked their site and they do not take manufacturer coupons.

      • Lknow68

        I called, my store takes manufacture coupons.

    • Mkwsenior

      I did this deal Wednesday but with the Staples 15% off coupon and the $.25/1 from the PG 6/05. Total came to $4.29 because she did not double the manf coupon.

      I have been to the same Staples b/f and used two manf coupons: (1) $1 off and (1) $0.25 and the cashier took both as $1 off plus (2) separate store coupons. It depends on the person, day, and place I think.

    • Karen

      OH, I was going anyway!  woohoo!

    • Moniqueskreeashuns

      Thank you! We can't use Charmin in our house because we have a septic tank but I am going to pick a pack up any way and donated to the charity that I donate all my excess stuff to.

      • Csaundersc21

        We have a septic as well and charmin basic is septic safe!!

        • Vjcpurple

          Hey, me too. We have septic tank. It is safe.

      • Mandyward67

        we have a septic tank and only use this kind!

      • Mea

        I have a septic tank and use Charmin all the time.  My tank just got emptied and inspected 3 months ago.  No problems here! :)

    • Josie

      I always find Staples to be upon one of the best places to get TP, paper towels & other items like that.

    • Denise

      Please notice that the 20% off coupon is only valid until July 2nd….that is TOMORROW !

    • Saveapenny2011

      I went two days ago.  They had it for $8.99 and would not honor the $4.99 sale price.  Is this sale on their site or in their flyer?  Is there someway to prove that it is reduced?  Thanks

      • Michelle

        I think it's a month long deal, that just started today, on the 1st! :)

      • Amy B.

        It was emailed out to everyone last week and the price is good through 7/30. It may not be marked at the store, but it should ring up $4.99!

      • Carol_R

        I got an email on June 29th from Staples about it. I'm printing out my email to take in with my tonight. I want that $4.99 price less the 20% off.

    • Vjcpurple

      My hubby only likes Charmin basic. It is stock up time!!!!!

    • Ronna

      Exactly where on the Staples website is the 20% off coupon??? thanks

    • Amy B.

      You can click on it from the first page of the weekly ad and they also emailed it out.

    • Kenewton

      If you're going to Staples to take advantage of this fabulous Charmin deal, then you might as well print a coupon for a 12 pack of yellow stickies for just $1.00.  We use a ton of these at my house.  It's the only way I can remember anything-LOL!http://reg.e.staples.com/c/s/t

      • BC

        thank you!

      • Michelle

        THANKS!  I do all of the office supply shopping for my office, and with a small business saving money always helps!!!

      • 75piglet

        Thanks Kenewton just went and got mine.  What a steal!!!

      • BrittG

        I went and pick up these post-its valued at like 11 dollars or something crazy like that. where do you find staples coupons for this good of value?

    • Alissa

      Does anyone know if you can use more than one of these in a single shopping trip?

      • Meredith

        I did! I used two.  I just asked the clerk if I could do 2 transactions because I wanted to use both of my coupons.  She didn't care.  Going back later for more! :)

        • Alissa


      • amber renee

        fine print reads “limit one per customer, per day.”

        • Alissa


    • Pepsi1williams

      my coupon says only valid 7/2 so check before you go

      • amber renee

        the coupon i printed reads “valid through 7/2/2011”

    • Kathrynkoon

      Does Staples take manufacture coupons?

      • NC Couponing Mommy

        yes ma'am!

    • Janna

      I am new at this.  How do you get the 20% coupon.  Every time I go to the site I can
      't find it.  Please help!  Thanks Janna

      • Stacielovescoupons

        just click on the blue link above. (where it says 20% off coupon in blue) that should lead you right to it!!

    • Janna

      Got it guys! Thanks.

    • Mitzimckay

      Thanks Jenny!!  Just got a pack!  What an awesome deal:)

    • Debbie

      The 20% off coupon says valid “through” 7/2….not valid “on” 7/2….so today should be just fine to purchase it. I'm going in a bit to get mine!

    • Debbie

      To get the coupon…just click on the link above where it says “20% off one item coupon”.

    • Beepampered

      So what is the best price per roll for toilet paper? I'm not a big Chairman fan because the rolls don't last a long time. I don't know how to price compare – price per roll is good but if some have more sheets then it's not equal.

      • Beck

        I try to compare it by square footage. That's not a perfect system either, b/c some tp is one ply and some is 2 ply, but I've found it to be the best way to tell (if someone has a better system, I'd love to hear about it). For me, a decent deal is 1 cent per square foot or less, because that is cheaper than most store brand tp. This one is 2 ply and it is 584.5 square feet. So, to me this is a good deal.  584.5 sq ft @ $3.99 = about 2/3 of one cent per sq. ft.

      • Sigaduro

        Charmin Basic, the orange package, rolls last a lot longer. I grew up with Scott, super thin but lasts forever, and my hubby grew up with Charmin, super soft but gone in a day. This is a great compromise! We use it all the time, and we have 5 little behinds in the house too, four of which are girls ;). Can't afford the expensive stuff. 30-35 cents is normally a good price for this kind. This is a great deal! I am heading out this evening to get some!

        • This sounds like a conversation with my husband, he pointed out these rolls will be gone in a day…sigh.  I got one and also got my 5.00 coupon (thanks for the tip above, had to check an email I almost never use).  I got one yesterday going to go back for more, and try and use the MF Q as well.  He is totally on board with my couponing but sometimes his logic of price per ounce, or roll cannot be denied.  For him it is not just about OOP costs but per unit costs, which sometimes you do better paying more OOP

    • Amanda

      Just got mine, thanks. My staples let me use the 20% off coupon and a $0.25 off charmin.  With tax my total was $4.01.  What a great deal!

    • Mandy Reel

      I just went today and used the 15% off coupon on 1 pkg, I'll def. be going back this weekend to get some more now with the 20% off coupon – it's a great stock-up price for name-brand TP!! :)  Does anyone know if you can stack MF coupons with this coupon at Staples? 

      • Donna

        Yes, you can use a manufacturer coupon there!  I had my hubby do it last night!

        • Mandy

          Yay, I think I'm going to go back tonight or tomorrow, and TRY to see if they'll let me use the 20% off +2 MF coupons on two pkgs!!  We'll see… even if not 20% off on just one pkg is still a great price! =)

    • YHerberger

      The 20 % off coupon is only good till 7/2

    • Naterosso

      its not on sale for 4.99 until sunday where i'm at.  it was actually 8.99, didn't pay to get it, i'll wait till sunday, where 4.99 is still a good deal.

    • Mariaaveldanez

      where can i get a charmin manufacterer coupon?

      • Couponwilliams

        pg6/5 it is for 25 cents off

      • Dianne L

        P&G coupon from insert this Sunday or from June 5.

    • Dianne L

      I was about to head out the door, but since Staples would have been the only place I would have gone today, I decided to go another day this month.It would have cost me the $1 I would have saved w/ coupon just to get there! I am kind of proud that I made that decision!

    • Ssalabarria

      Staples honors Office Depot coupons, so if you find the little book of coupons around town, there is a $10 off $25!!!  Get 5 packs for $15 and if you have manufactors coupons more savings!!!!

    • Awesome deal today, thanks for sharing all!  Saved $8 on both!

    • Capulliam

      Went to our Staples and it was still 8.99 is this in every store

      • Tonya

        I went today too and ours was still 8.99.  I'm in Columbus, Ga

      • Capulliam

        actually had my wife go ahead and go back and try to purchase and even though the signage said $8.99 it did ring up at $4.99.  Great deal

    • Martinfamily

      I can't find the coupon on the website…HELP! I've clicked twice on the link posted above

    • Dharvn

      thanx, i'm going in a few min.

      • Dharvn

        got 1 pack, used the 20% cpn and $.25 charmin cpn, pd $4.02. sending hubby and the kids back tomorrow.

    • Mel

      For those of you who are part of the Staples Loyalty Program, they just sent out a $5 Reward coupon this week that is good through 7/30. This will cover the entire bill for the Charmin deal without using any extra coupons.

    • ANA

      I bought 2 yesterday. I used the $1/2 Charmin and the 15% coupon, paid about $8.25,  great deal! Yes, on the shelf it says $8.99, but scans at $4.99 price.

    • ANA

      I have the 20% coupon to use tomorrow!!

    • Medicgirl014

      I went to Staples today for the Charmin deal! Was told one coupon per customer per day and I could not combine the 20% off with another coupon. Thankfully I had my son with me and we were able to get 2 paks. Still a very good deal but with a house of 7 we go through a lot of tissue.

    • Carol_R

      I'm going to return my toilet paper & the Sharpies I bought tonight tomorrow and have them ring them up again. Because I didn't do 2 different transactions (1 for all the ones that I had Staples coupons for at set $ amount) and a different one for the Charmin TP with the 20%, l looked at my receipt and I got charged $4 more than I should have. The 20% coupon attached the the highest priced item (before the Staples coupon) and it never applied the coupon for the Sharpies. If they don't want to re-ring it, then they can just have it back. I don't normally use Charmin (I always use Scott's) .

      • Dharvn

        wow…i don't understand how you didn't see that at the register. how many items did you buy?

        • I can speak for myself not Carol. Sometimes at checkout there are distractions. One being young children. I usually always have something I didn't catch when I have my daughter with me, lol. There is one store I refuse to go back to because the prices always ring up wrong.

          • Dharvn

            i have children too, so i understand all of the drama/distractions that occur when trying to shop for groceries and use coupons…kids, especially your own, can be a real pain in the butt..lol.

            but picking up a couple of items from staples isn't as cumbersome as grocery shopping, that's why i asked how many items she purchased.

    • Babatts12

      Went to staples tonight…they said I could use 2 coupons for the tp. Used my 20 percent off coupon and $1 off coupon. Got my pack for $2.99 great deal! Thanks for the tip!!

      • LUCY LU


    • This deal made me so happy! The cashier asked me if there was more back there she had no clue about the deal because they did not have the price $4.99 listed on the shelf.

      • Dharvn

        i went all the way to back of the store to get a pack, only to discover at checkout that they have a huge display right up front that missed completely when i entered the store!

        • 75piglet

          I did the same thing!  LOL

    • Lucy lu


    • Jerseydevil151

      Thank you for finding this deal. I ended up printing (3) 20% of one item coupons not knowing if I could use them all. After talking to the cashier to see if I could use them before they expired today, she said she didn't have a problem letting me if the computer let it go through. All 3 went through no problem and I also used a $.25/1 MQ. Ended up paying 11.82 for 48 rolls or $.25 a roll. Made my morning so thank you again.

    • Becky

      I was able to use the 20% off for more than one toilet paper. it was a glitch. It took $1 each pack that  I bought.

    • Stanlinda74

      I went to Staples today for the Charmin, but was told the sale was going to be only for July 3 and 4th. So the deal did not work for me.
